We have developed an English curriculum that we hope students will find exciting, challenging and liberating.  Our curriculum will develop students who are well read and knowledgeable about language but also skilled in debate and discussion about their ideas and attitudes. We aim to achieve a balance of structure and skills to give support while offering opportunities for developing creativity and individuality.

Preparation is key to our curriculum with students doing the groundwork for success at IGCSE, the IB diploma and higher education while opening up pathways leading to lifelong learning by developing a love of language and literature. We will also be adopting a cross-curricular approach linking themes and activities with History, Drama. Art and other subjects.
